First Reading: Level One.

A terrific retelling of an Aesop Fable where sneaky tricks and playful revenge take centre stage between friends. Titles in this level are designed to be the first real books a beginner reader will tackle and are designed to foster a lasting enthusiasm for books and reading. They are 32 pages in length, comprising the main story (up to 150 words), from classic tales to folk tales, delightful illustrations and 6 pages of fun, reading-related puzzles. Will be enjoyed with equal enthusiasm if read alone or together with a parent.

Other First Reading Level 1 titles include The Wish Fish, The Sun and the Wind and The Fox and The Crow.
